Hyundai Sonata vs Honda Accord: Performance Specs

The Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord both offer a powerful and easy-to-handle drive. Luckily, if you're looking for something efficient, both these models provide great fuel economy. When properly equipped, the zippy Sonata can get up to an EPA-estimated 38 highway MPG.* The Honda Accord also offers 38 MPG on the highway.

For even more efficiency, however, the Sonata has you covered. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata also comes in a Hybrid model to elevate fuel economy even more. A Plug-In Hybrid is available as well. This comes with a hybrid powertrain that's capable of running solely on electric power.

The 2020 Honda Accord is efficient and features a hybrid model as well. Unfortunately, it doesn't come in a plug-in hybrid version as the Sonata does.

2020 Hyundai Sonata vs 2020 Honda Accord: Interior Design & Features

The interiors of both sedans are luxurious, to say the least. The Sonata and the Accord are made with high-quality materials combining style and functionality in one great-looking space. On top of that, they come with tons of comfort features and infotainment technologies, so you can better enjoy each ride and commute. Some of the features and technologies you'll find in both sedans include an automatic climate control system, an infotainment system with smartphone capabilities, and heated power-adjustable front seats.

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata takes it one step further, though. Also included in this sedan is a class-exclusive hands-free smart trunk. When you're standing behind the sedan for more than three seconds with your key fob in your pocket or purse, the trunk will automatically open for your convenience. The Accord, unfortunately, doesn't come with anything similar.

The Sonata is also more spacious than the Accord, especially when it comes to the front seat. With 40 inches of headroom in the front and a whopping 46.1 inches of legroom, you can stretch out and get cozy. The Accord, however, only offers 39.5 inches of front headroom and 42.3 inches of legroom, so you may feel slightly more cramped.

2020 Sonata vs 2020 Honda: Safety

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata and the 2020 Honda Accord are two of the most reliable sedans on the market. They also focus on making your drive as safe as can be. Each model is equipped with advanced safety features, like automatic emergency braking and Lane Keeping Assist systems. These technologies are designed to help you stay focused on the road, so you can avoid potential accidents.

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata also includes a Blind View Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist. This lets you know when a vehicle is traveling in your blind spots. It will also let you know if a car is approaching from either side while you're backing out of a parking spot.

The 2020 Honda Accord also features a Blind Spot Information System, but you'll have to move to a higher trim to get it.

There are also some other driver-assistive technologies and safety features you'll miss out on with the Honda Accord. These features in the Hyundai Sonata promote an even safer drive, giving you the confidence you'll need behind the wheel. Some include:

  • Lane Following Assist
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Rear Occupant Alert
  • Highway Drive Assist

Sonata vs Accord: Technology

Along with the innovations in safety, the Honda Accord and the Hyundai Sonata also offer a suite of interior technologies you'll soon find yourself relying on. However, there are quite a few differences.

Both sedans come equipped with infotainment systems that offer touchscreens to control features safely while you're on the go. However, the standard touchscreen in the Accord is seven inches, while the Sonata display is larger at eight inches. This can also be upgraded to an impressive 10.25 inches, while the Honda only offers an available 8-inch display.

The Hyundai Sonata also comes standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, features not on the standard trims of the Honda Accord. Additionally, a 12-speaker Bose® sound system and interior ambient lighting with 64 color choices are also available in the 2020 Sonata. The 2020 Accord, on the other hand, offers fewer speakers at 10 and a much more limited ambient lighting system.

Choosing the Right Sedan for You

Both sedans are impressive and sure to elevate all your commutes. However, if you're looking for a model that boasts a more efficient performance, extra standard features, and a comprehensive suite of safety systems, the Hyundai Sonata may be for you.
